Those who are able to transfer are going to areas where they "fit in" better now. Class lines are being segregated now just by who is able/encouraged to enroll elsewhere and who is not. Example: a poor black kid goes to poor school because they don't have a choice and are with other students like themselves. While his middle-class white neighbor goes to another school with more white kids that is well funded and has better course options. There are already class lines being drawn because there are choices only for some.
Yes, there should absolutely be a diverse population in schools. It increases the diversity of perspectives and provides for a much more aware and knowledgeable classroom. Hopefully requiring students to stay within their boundary will increase this diversity while providing a quality education to everyone.
